Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, shortened to Javits Center in popular usage, is a large convention center located on Eleventh Avenue, between 34th and 40th streets, in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan, New York City.
More than at any time since its opening in 1986, the Javits Center is fulfilling its mission as the Marketplace for the World®
Operated by the New York Convention Center Operation Corporation (NYCCOC), a public benefit corporation, the Javits Center helps drive the economies of New York State and New York City, generating an impressive $1.5 billion in economic activity and supporting 14,000 jobs. Nowhere in the country will you find a more sought-after, state-of-the-art facility—one with the extensive resources, services and staff of elite professionals dedicated to making every trade show, convention and special event a success.
With 840,000 square feet of flexible exhibition space occupying six city blocks along the scenic Hudson River, the facility can accommodate any size event, at any time. It’s no wonder that 35,000 companies choose it as their preferred venue every year. Underscoring its role as the country’s busiest convention center, the Javits Center recently completed a sweeping 5-year, $460 million renovation noted for the construction of the 110,000-square-foot Javits North exhibit hall and installation of the largest green roof in the Northeast. And when you consider that the new Javits Center sits at the nexus of Manhattan’s resurgent, bustling West Side neighborhood, it’s easy to see why whatever’s happening, happens here.
